  • "Jimmy Olsen vs. Darkseid", which details what happens when a "Freaky Friday" Flip leaves Jimmy and Superman in each other's bodies. Seeing a smart-mouthed teenager talking out of the Man of Steel's mouth is rather hilarious.
  • "Yesterday's Man of Tomorrow": The Teen of Steel exasperates Mxy by refusing to play his game. The latest encounter ends with this line:
    Mxyzptlk: Kltpzyxm! Kltpzyxm! You're even more of a pain in the neck than your older self!

  • Another Mxy moment occurs in "22 Stories in a Single Bound": The imp returns to torment Superman while he's the middle of a team-up with Batman. It goes as well as you expect.
    Mxyzptlk: (Fleeing back to the Fifth Dimension) "I dunno about you, Supes, but that guy gives me the creeps!"
  • "Don't Try This At Home!" - A Mad Bomber ends up crossing with a plot to frame Superman as a criminal, blows up the robot, and dances a jig as he believes he's killed him for good, when the real McCoy floats down behind him. Four panels of disbelief end in "How many times do I have to kill you before you stay dead?!"
  • "Roughnecks": A supervillain-wannabe in a robot suit takes Jimmy hostage to attract Superman's attention. After beating him, Superman drags him back over to Jimmy to apologize.
  • While Jimmy is interviewing him about a recent battle between Superman and Kalibak, the "Superman Watcher" notices the signal watch and tries to buy it. The teen rebuffs him, saying a special friend gave it to him. After a few seconds to realize the implications, the guy delays the interview further by bowing and saying that he doesn't deserve to be in Jimmy's presence, much to the young reporter's exasperation.
